Ginger Wine Essence

Northumbrian Ginger Compound

Traditional Northumbrian Ginger Compound, makes a delicious non-alcoholic drink.

Ginger wine is a popular drink served traditionally in households in Scotland and the north east of England at Christmas and Hogmanay. It is a perfect winter drink ideal for those wanting something festive without alcohol but tastes equally well with a drop of whiskey. Ginger is also very beneficial for digestion and can help with nausea.

Service and product first class .Would recommend to other people

Nice product

Makes up to a nice ginger wine bringing back childhood memories. Used half a blackcurrant jelly in each mix just like granny used to.

Fantastic Ginger Wine Essence - Fantastic Service!

Used this essence for a few years now, in my opinion the best I have tried in 50 years. Rich, warm taste that gives way to a lovely, smooth after-taste that is eesential for my family Christmas celebrations. I made an error this year with my order (completely my fault) but Anna was outstanding and went above and beyond to ensure I had my delivery in time for Christmas. Top class service and one very happy customer!
